Mathematica: An Introduction Training Course
Fri 19 May 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
Introduces the core technologies needed to become an adept user of Mathematica, including the Wolfram Language, the notebook interface, programming fundamentals, visualization and interactivity features, and mathematics and statistics functionality. Small class sizes allow for interaction with the instructor, and in-person courses allow additional time for discussion, exercises, and Q&A. This course is also available in French and Spanish.
The course is for anyone who would like to become a proficient Mathematica user. This course is helpful for people with little experience with Mathematica and the Wolfram Language as well as for experienced users who would like to broaden their basic understanding of the system.
